The Human and Environmental Development Agenda (HEDA), a non-governmental organisation, has called on the National Judicial Council (NJC) not to give any iota of consideration to call for boycott of cases brought by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
This is in response to calls by some Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and individuals for the court to boycott EFCC cases.
HEDA, in a statement signed by its Chairman, Olanrewaju Suraju, expressed concern over the calls by the so-called CSOs to boycott EFCC cases, saying that such calls were unconstitutional, against the rule of law and capable of undermining the fight against corruption in Nigeria.
He further called on the NJC to ignore such ignoble meddling in the affairs of law enforcement agencies, capable of throwing the country into chaos.

HEDA also urged the CSOs to desist from making such spurious calls, which it described as “Precipitating unnecessary unconstitutional acts because of pecuniary interest.”
According to the organisation, the EFCC has been instrumental in the fight against corruption in Nigeria and any attempt to undermine its work will only serve to promote corruption and impunity of public and private persons.
